Esther 3:15

"Spurred on by the king's command, the couriers went out, and the edict was issued in the citadel of Susa. The king and Haman sat down to drink, but the city of Susa was bewildered." NIV translation

So the law went out to all of the lands as well as being posted in the capital city. Haman and the king celebrated but the common city people did not understand why the order was issued.

Though it may seem like the darkest of times for God's people and that the enemies are rejoicing, we must know that God is at work behind the scenes and the celebration of the evil will end. God is still in control and that applies to our lives today as well.
